At the Most Expensive Townhouse in New York City, Historic Luxury Meets Modern Amenities

    by

    Manhattan is full of intriguing architectural history, and this 20,000-square-foot townhouse is one of its more glamorous examples. Little wonder why — the architect William Bosworth played a role in the restoration of the Palace of Versailles, which influenced the owners of this home in the scale and design of the rooms throughout.

    Besides such a sterling pedigree, what makes the six-level 12 East 69th so remarkable?

      • Width: Between 5th and Madison on the Upper East Side, it’s the only available renovated mansion that’s 40 feet wide.
      • The Park: It’s just two townhouses from 5th Avenue and Central Park.
      • Tranquility: Tree-lined East 69th Street has no buses or dense traffic streaming in and out of Central Park.
      • Amenities: There’s an indoor saline swimming pool, gym and duplex cinema.
